once again time to drydock
; which in our case means pulling it up a beach far enough to be outtof wave reach.
due to a new riverside-road being build we had to change location this year and it was MUCH harder then usually. i guess every degree of inclination makes a big difference if you're hauling 25t up a hill. usually we do this with 2 chain-blocks and 30-50 guys who push'n'lift and reposition logs
. so i thought it would be nice if we could get some 'diesel-power' help, i see a 60hp (car)diesel (with 5-gear transmission) sitting around idly
))) i guess even if i used 'block-and-tackle' to connect to various points of d boat
, a reduction gear
would still be necessary. to achieve a final 50:1 to 100:1 ratio, that should be enough.
has anybody already built such a similar power-winch? or have a photo
of one he saw? is always nice if one doesn't have to 'reinvent d wheel' from scratch
